Did you guys up the hops to get the 82 IBUs? If so which ones?

Beersmith is only giving me 60.4 IBUs. Should I just up the Warrior? Or add to the Cent/Cascade additions?


1.00 oz Warrior [15.80 %] (90 min) Hops 43.0 IBU
0.75 oz Cascade [5.70 %] (30 min) Hops 7.5 IBU
0.50 oz Centennial [11.20 %] (30 min) Hops 9.9 IBU


Cheers!

I'm using Columbus as my bittering addition and just upping it. Matt said in the interview that they sometimes use CTZ as bittering so it shouldnt have any noticeable affect on the final product. Just mashed in!

Thanks Lenny. Upped the Warrior to 1.50 oz for 81.9 IBUs (close enough).

I've got 25 min left on the boil with a gravity of 1.074.

Excited for the 4.0 oz flameout addition.

Looking forward to hearing how this comes out for you all. Brewing this next weekend with 2010 hops

Reason: Did not read the first post closely, where Rager is stated as utilization curve.

Yeah, I'm swirling it around a bit and slowly pumping it to the fermenter. 15 min into it and about half way done.

Approximately 24 hours after pitch and I'm down to 1.046.

About halfway there.

Pitched @ about 65 degrees and am hovering between 70-72.

I can testify that if you push the limits of WLP007, it will be very attenuative. I brewed a beer that went from 1063 to 1010 (92% Maris Otter, 4% C-75, 4% carapils and mashed at 147F). I was trying to hit 1012. The beer turned out great, but even drier than I anticipated.

For this reason, I doubt that they use a pure strain of 007. If I was to brew this, I would stick with 002.

Glad I went with the 002. I'll report back with my final gravity.

I'm just under 24 hours and this thing is blowing off like crazy! Pitched before bed last night and when I woke up this morning it had already been blowing off for several hours. Didn't take a reading but its fermenting happily at 65 right now. Pitched at 63 like Matt said he does. can't wait for this one!
